    Question Is there a command to un-hide the Mappoint skin without clicking the mouse?

    As the thread title really - is there an RR command which will display the Mappoint skin after it's auto-hidden?

    I'm using a PowerMate, combined with Girder, to control RR. The problem is, when I'm using the Mappoint skin, I can't get the controls to appear after they've hidden by clicking the Powermate (which sends a "CTRLEXEC" command to RR). Pushing it will quite happily exectute whatever button is selected on the hidden form, but that's not much use if I can't see it! At the moment I have to come out of the Mappoint screen and then back in again so the form reappears, which works, but isn't very convenient.

    Thanks

    Can you just simulate a mouse click with girder?

    Is there a way to make it so the controls don't hide to begin with?? If not could this be added simalar to the way it is handeled in the video player screen. I just got mappoint and have been doing a bit of searching on mappoint info but I havent' really found much info on the subjects I want. I would like to skin over the info bar across the top and add some perminate buttons at the bottom. I have also noticed that when I use a dialog box inside mappoint while it is embedded in RR it strarts flashing after a few seconds and I can't enter anything else.

    Why would you want to use dialog boxes inside mappint while embedded in RR ?

    There's no way right now to skin the info pane or to not-hide the controls. Arathranar started working in something to that effect. Mappoint support was made merely to replicate MC's mappoint support.
